Sensory-Friendly IMAX® Screenings


Endorsed by

The Museum of Discovery and Science launched its new Sensory-Friendly Screenings at the AutoNation IMAX Theater, which started December 15, 2018, with a special screening of The Polar Express.

To provide a more sensory-sensitive environment for individuals on the autism spectrum, we will bring lights up and lower the sound in the movie auditorium. Audience members are welcome to get up, sing, walk, dance, and shout without worrying about someone complaining.

All films will be presented in 2D. No trailers will be shown before the movie.

Because some have special dietary needs, families are allowed to bring their gluten-free snacks from home. Guests are also permitted to bring blankets or other small items that will make them feel comfortable.

Sensory-friendly screenings will take place on the third Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m.

Regular tickets prices will apply. Sensory-Friendly Screenings are open to the public.
